immigrant_punk Greg and I came across a wildfire burning outside Lodgepole on our way to Drayton Valley last week -- this was about 10 kilometers away from it #wildfires #alberta #travelalberta #naturalhazards #draytonvalley #lodgepole #canada #albertawildfire #film #35mm #filmphotography #photography #shootfilm #canonae1 #mushroomcloud 3d

usgs A View From Above — A view of the flanks of Cleveland volcano (top) and Carlisle volcano (bottom) viewed from an Alaska Airlines 737 en route to Adak, Alaska. The photo was taken on May 31, 2012. Currently, Cleveland volcano is at a yellow alert level and recently had a small steam event.
Did you know, that there are over 160 U.S. volcanoes that have erupted in the past 10,000 years? We monitor many of these volcanoes including the previously mentioned Cleveland volcano. Here's a list of all the volcanoes that we monitor with links to details, data, and more about each one: http://on.doi.gov/VolcanoList.
You can also learn why monitoring of volcanic activity is vital to protecting people, property, and understanding this dynamic planet we call home: http://on.doi.gov/VolcanoMonitoring.

usgs San Francisco City Hall — For our #TBT we're sharing a photo from San Francisco City Hall after the Great San Francisco Earthquake on April 18, 1906 (9 days from now...and, of course, almost 109 years earlier). After the earthquake and fires, the building was reconstructed with a new design and slightly smaller footprint. After the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake the building was retrofitted with a seismic base isolation system which essentially helps separate the main building from the substructure below it, using flexible rubber bearings or pads, in order to absorb much of the shaking from an earthquake rather than that motion moving upwards into the building itself. This doesn't make the building "earthquake proof" but it can significantly lower the amount of damage.

You can learn more about about earthquakes and earthquake preparedness at http://earthquake.usgs.gov/learn/

jamessmale I'm coming to the end of my first degree and it's causing me to reflect on the past few years. There's been ups and downs but all in all I have had a fantastic time and I'll sorry to see the back of it. I would like to thank my beautiful girlfriend for all the support she has given me over the past 2 and a half years, I don't think I would be where I am today without her. I love you @crizzelward #university #degree #geography #naturalhazards #reflection #graduatingsoon #girlfriend #love #her 2mon
